Regional energy markets are facing new challenges, creating opportunities and risks for a wide range of stakeholders and new challenges for regulators and policymakers. For example, Hong Kong's new Scheme of Control is the "greenest ever" with elements promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy and prospective reductions in coal-fired generation and increases in natural gas use and non-fossil alternatives.
Green trends are evident throughout Asia, but the region is still behind trends in the rest of the world. China continues to press forward – leading the region in many ways - with more renewable energy but also it struggles with excess capacity and poor air quality. What does it all mean? What are some of the challenges and opportunities ahead?
Join Mike Thomas, co-founding partner of The Lantau Group, a leading energy economics consultancy based in Hong Kong that advises energy stakeholders throughout the Asia Pacific region on policy, regulatory, and commercial issues related to the electricity and gas sectors, in a combined presentation and discussion session for anyone interested in these important and perplexing issues.
